Entertaining and practical introduction breaking down the formation of habits and the three-step habit loop. Long and detailed case examples throughout the book. I will definitely re-read the first couple chapters again.
I’m not sure if they are the best but I currently follow: Derek Sivers (great book summaries too) Scott Adams’ Blog (lots of recent posts about Donald Trump) Brain Pickings (long form exploration and discovery) The 4-Hour Workweek (entertaining podcast) Sam Harris (deeper topics podcast) https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-best-blogs-for-improving-ones-thinking
Interesting insights into many life situations. This book does not answer “how to be happy” but gives background information on the feeling of happiness.
I only finished first three parts (approx 25%) but intend to finish the book. Very scientific, examples are detailed and referenced thoroughly in the book.
A quick fun read introducing the concept of Free Will. Highly Recommended.
